Bugs - Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Precision flight, swarm intelligence, mind control … enter the world of bugs. Marvel at their adaptive genius and see if you can match their brilliance. Will you save the Japanese honeybee hive from an invading hornet? Can you spot the orchid mantis before she spears you for her lunch in the secret garden?

Sensory advisory: This exhibition is a high-sensory environment containing significant lighting effects (including a strobe light located in the dragonfly chamber), sounds and music, and interactive media screens.


"Bugs", an exhibition created by Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand and Weta Workshop (the creative studio behind the Lord of the Rings films’ fantastical sets), reveals the secrets of insects and arthropods in delightful, dazzling ways.


From immersive activities that get you thinking to hands-on games that get you moving, "Bugs" inspires us to be curious about the tiny-but-mighty creatures among us, appreciative of the vital role they play in the natural world, and energized to help them thrive.
